Boca Ciega did not have to look far for its next girls basketball coach. The school has hired Cheryl Greene, who is currently the girls track and cheerleading coach. Greene is also an English teacher at the school.
“Cheryl has a long established relationship with the kids at our school,’’ Boca Ciega athletic director Deb Fabrizio said. “She’s been an excellent track coach and stood out among the candidates we had for the job.’’
Fabrizio said there were nearly 40 applicants for the head coaching job.
Greene will relinquish her cheerleading duties to focus on basketball. She takes over for Michael Hall, who was head coach for two years before resigning in March. The Pirates were 6-15 this past season.
